Teacher shot dead in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 28 May 2008, 14:57 GMT]
Unidentified armed men, following a teacher who was riding on his motorcycle towards Jaffna Railway Station through a small lane near Aariyaku’lam in Jaffna town, gunned him down Wednesday around 1:00 p.m and escaped from the area, sources in Jaffna said. Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troops were present only hundred meters at the main base of SLA 512 Division.

The victim was identified as Sinnathurai Velsuthakaran, 32, a teacher at Changkaanai Chaivappirakaasa Viththiyaasaalai and a resident of Uduvil North, Chunnaakam.

Jaffna police recovered the body and handed it over to Jaffna Teaching Hospital mortuary.

The killing taking place in broad daylight and in the most guarded place in Jaffna town without the killers being apprehended raises strong suspicion of SLA involvement, residents in Jaffna town said.
